In 2012, China launched a massive movement to build a moderately prosperous society. In Liangshan, mountains and sheer rocks blocked the path to prosperity and modernization. Liangshan is one of China's poorest regions. The environment is harsh, the education resources are scarce, and healthcare is limited. The 18th CPC National Congress launched China's largest anti-poverty campaign to help areas like Liangshan, where the situation began to change for the better.
